COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer Cuvée des Jacobins is unblended old lambic, aged for at least 18 months in (French) oak barrels from the cognac region. These oak barrels are called ’Foeders’ in Dutch. It has a robust character but is beautiful and sophisticated with a full body and overtones of vanilla, dried cherry, stone fruit and cocoa. It is a complex, beautiful sour beer.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Great sour. Almost a sweet, rich balsamic vinegar taste. The aroma is sour, of cherry, and a faint funk. Pours brown with little head. Taste is of light cherry notes, balsamic vinegar, sweet, and a mouth aching sourness. Finishes dry, sweet, and sour. Really good.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 0,33 l bottle. Clear dark cherry amber colour with small off white head. CHreey and apple in aroma, some clorin all the way back there, the taste reminds me of a candy i had when i was a kid. Dried fruit and more cherries, a very nice balance between the oak, bitterness and sourness from the lambic . One of my favorite beers, can never get enough. See myself nipping to this many nights in the future

Dark brown, tanned head. Smells of tart fruits, funk, cherries, caramel and malts. Medium sweet, then medium sour, nice tart fruits like apples and cherries, some caramel. Moderate bitter, mostly fruit bitterness. Very nice fruity beer, quite well balanced. Also the caramel is very well integrated. Love this one

Robe limpide, cuivrée aux reflets rubis. Nez oxydatif et gourmand à la fois (impression d’un vieux balsamique de Modène). Bouche à l’attaque très acidulée (pomme Granny), développant ensuite beaucoup de fruité (pêche blanche). Finale longue et complexe.
